On 10 January 2022, the Prague Public Transit Company launched the construction of the infrastructure for the first regular trolleybus line since 1954 in the sections Palmovka – Prosek and Letňany – Čakovice.
The construction of the overhead contact lines and power infrastructure will last 10 months, its commissioning is expected during October this year. It will mean real return of trolleybuses to Prague. They will run on line 58 from Palmovka to Čakovice, and part of the connections all the way to Miškovice.
In addition to the construction of traction masts and overhead contact lines, a cable route will be laid, a new container substation will be built, as well as 18 charging stations in the Klíčov garage of the Prague Public Transit Company and a new container battery station in Čakovice, which will be used to charge trolleybus traction batteries at the terminal stop. The contractor will further modify and equip the existing substation in Prosecká and the former trolleybus substation in Příborská Street in Letňany with new technology, where the latter will, after more than 55 years, once again serve its original purpose – supplying traction lines for trolleybuses.
